I used to have a subscription to AP magazine but now my only connection with AP is through this podcast. They do a good job of getting talented artists with interesting backgrounds and stories to tell. However, listening to Mike Shea is like listening to a broken record of monotonous stuttering and remedial questions/statements. In his latest interview he talks with Chris Conley of Saves The Day who is one of the most talented and influential artists of the alternative scene. Mike Shea could have a billion questions for Chris that I, or anyone else, would want to hear. But instead he begins by asking Chris about a blog in which he talked about strawberry jelly. As confusing as this was, Mike Shea then goes on to talk about himself (something he does often in the AP podcast) for the next few minutes. Mike tells Chris some family story about his grandpa and strawberry jelly... Now I can promise you Mike, no one listening, including Chris, wants to hear you talk about your relationship with jelly and pretend that it is remotely interesting. No One Cares. Im sure Mike is great at writing pieces on bands. Hopefully AP will find a new person to interview the talent, someone who allows it to flow smoothly and make it about the artists and their music.
